I uploaded a photo of this cake earlier today and i just didn't like the way it looked it is my very first wedding cake and i wanted it to be perfect I hated the 6in cake on top it and i knew if i did not redo it i wouldn't be able to sleep tonight so as much as i hated to have to make more daises i did it and i think it looks better. what do you think?

I like the both but the after picture I like the best. I think the bow helps too. It's a gorgeous cake, don't mess with perfection. I love it just the way it is.

Great job for your first wedding cake! That is A LOT of daisies!!!
I do like the after one better. I think it looks a little more refined.

I like the "after" better as well, not that the "before" was anything to sneeze at!
Great job thumbs_up.gif

Yep, the top layer was too busy in the first one, and now you've solved that.
The second cake is a lot better! The vertical stripes add height and elegance.
Nice job!
I gotta compliment you on sticking it out and going the extra mile to do this right!
You won't regret it at all!

I also agree that I like the overall polished look of the second one more than the first but they are both beautiful. Very nice daisies, that must of taken a lot of work making all of them. Very nice job

Both are absolutely lovely. With the changes you've created 2 entirely different cakes. The "before" seems to have more of a "country" feel while the after seems like a French style. Guess I'm the odd man out - the "before" is my favorite.

Both are beautiful.....but I like the after better. Elegant, clean and the bow finishes it off.

omigosh, if only i could pull up something even remotely close to the first one that u hated...

agreeing with most of the replies, the 2nd one is better than the the first beaut... ok, i admit, i love both.

I really do like them both, but my only question is- what is the bride expecting her cake to look like? Did you do a sketch which looked like the original cake which she approved? If so, even though it's gorgeous, she might not be too pleased that you changed the design last minute.

I like the topper of the before better too... but I like the addition of the bow. Both are nice though. icon_smile.gif

That is a beautiful cake, I love the after. Although the before looks nice. You really nailed it the second time. Nice work. I want to make this cake, I have been wanting to do a yellow cake. Lovely!

i like the after but mainly because of the angle and the lighting of the picture.

i gotta ask... how many daisies did you have to make???

They are both pretty - just different styles - as another poster mentioned. I do prefer the 2nd cake.

I think it's fantastic that you were able to see the first cake, decide that you weren't happy, and then make the changes.

Nice work.

I definitly like the second one you did better. The style is much more current looking.
